Toronto Six Appoint Kevin Greco As Assistant Coach



TORONTO — The Toronto Six have named Kevin Greco the team’s new assistant coach, joining Geraldine Heaney’s coaching staff for the Premier hockey Federation’s eighth season. Greco succeeds the position held by Angela James during Season 7 before she was appointed General Manager of the team on May 31.

“I think those that know me know I’ve dedicated a lot of the last 15 years to supporting

women’s hockey and advocating for equity at all levels,” said Greco.

“When I was approached with an opportunity to work with the Six and learn from some hockey legends like our Hall of Famers Geraldine Heaney, Angela James, Digit Murphy, and even others around the league like Mel Davidson and Reagan Carey, I think it was a no-brainer.”

"Kevin brings a lot of knowledge and coaching experience to the T6 coaching staff,” said Geraldine Heaney, Head Coach of the Toronto Six. “He has a passion and love for the game and is a great addition to the coaching staff. I’m excited to work and learn from Kevin and can't wait to get started!”

Greco has been involved at various levels of the game for over 25 years, including the last decade spent with the Burlington Girls Hockey Club. During his tenure with the rep program, he has led his teams to three provincial championships and won a bronze medal against Ontario's top competition. During the 2021-22 season, his Burlington Barracudas compiled an overall record of 30-23-4, earning a silver finish in U22 Elite Group 2 and qualified for the Provincial Women’s Hockey League championship tournament.

His earlier coaching experience includes stints at Brampton’s Notre Dame Catholic Secondary School and Mississauga’s St Aloysius Catholic Secondary School, where he coached the Senior boys program to three regional championships. In 2018, Greco spent one season with McMaster University as an assistant coach with the women’s hockey development program. Greco has been dedicated to supporting his athletes in reaching their goals at the NCAA and USPORTS levels, while pursuing the highest opportunities with Team Ontario and Team Canada programs.


Before launching his career as a coach, Greco played Junior and university level hockey and turned down some professional opportunities to pursue a career in teaching. Since then, he has gone on to complete many certifications, including his Masters in Sports Administration from Canisius College, which he feels will further assist him in helping the coaching staff to provide a top professional women’s hockey program.

Pleased to join the Toronto Six coaching staff at this time of rapid growth for the sport, Greco can’t wait to embark on his latest challenge and for the chance to learn along the way from his new counterparts. “I’m really excited about learning from others and learning the professional game,” he explained. “I think I have the technical background, but when you work with different people like Geraldine [Heaney] and with her experiences, I’m looking forward to seeing the approach she takes with the team, and developing that shared learning between coaches.”
